Hi ,
My name is satish. I have a bachelors in Computer science. I have about 8 + yrs of experience in the s/w consulting business. my ideal GMAT score would be mid 700's and considering my current scores (I scored a paltry 600 on my Kaplan assessment test), I have a long way to go. I love consulting business and would like to switch to management consulting from software consulting, not that I have any experience in it, but what the heck theres gotto be a first time. My ideal schools are Berkley , Fuqua. I would like to improve upon my verbal skills. SC in particular. Good luck preparing for GMAT guys. Lets all kick some GMAT butt

Ciao


Hi smandalika,
Welcome! I noticed you are interested in management consulting. Well, from a former management consultant, I recommend you read this article on the GMAT and how it relates to a career in management consulting.

SC is the easiest to improve in the short term. Reading may take a little longer---these RC videos may help.

Enjoy!

Hey guys,

I`ve been lurking for a while. After about 3 months of studying, about to take my first (and hopefully last) shot at the GMAT on Monday, June 6th!

I`m currently in strategy/management consulting, after having spent a couple of years doing M&A at a large Brazilian industrial group. Getting my MBA has always been one of my goals - let`s see how the GMAT goes so I can start thinking a little bit more about school selection.

Nice to meet everyone.

I found you guys a couple days ago in an Epiphany moment when I realized I could Google Kaplan questions I didn't understand XD I just started studying and am about three months out for my GMAT, target date Sept. 15th. Target score, 750. I've worked through a Kaplan book and took a CAT today, scored 580 (35/35)...ways still to go >.< but whatever.

Anyways, looking forward to meeting everyone.

HI guys, I'm Alex. I'm currently hovering around the 600 mark on the few practice exams I've taken. My goal is to take the GMAT this coming September and to score a 700. Which means I'll be dedicated many many hour a week studying as I lead up to my exam date.

I'm 30 years old, I'm the marketing manager for an online research chemical company. My undergrad is in 'Behavior Science & Health' ... If you are confused as to what that is or what it does for you, you are not alone. I don't know myself. HAHA.

My undergrad took me MUCH longer than it should have, and my GPA isn't anywhere near where it should be. While my work experience has been good, it isn't GREAT. Conclusion: I reaaaally need to bust out an amazing GMAT score to supplement some of the areas where I lack.

Anyway, I'm very glad I stumbled upon this forum. Excited to learn and grow.

Alex

Hi Alex, welcome to gmat club!!

I do believe that in 3 months time you can easily cross 700, provided you devote some good time to gmat preparation. A good online course or even the strategy books can do that for you. Following posts will help you in defining a clear strategy for your preparation

Hi Guys,
Greetings from Cairo,Egypt :D . my name is Mai and I've a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering and I'm planning on starting an MBA program next spring.

I took the GMAT last month and the score was really disappointing I got 520 which of course is not enough, so I decided to retake the test, I plan to do that by the end of September so that gives me 2 months to prepare, hopefully I'll nail it this time!

I am taking the GMAT in October. I joined this forum to get inspiration. I'm enrolled in the Manhattan prep course. I am planning on studying 8hrs/day 3 days a week and hope that this is enough to eek out a 700 in October. Pray for me :)

Hi folks, my name is William and I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area working in micro-finance/economic development. Its a growing field (at least in the Bay Area) that is attracting MBAs, so I'm looking to go back to b-school to stay competitive. Target schools are UC's (Berk, Davis, LA, Irvine, SD) and also USC. Currently studying for the gmat, target score is 700.

Out of curiosity...anybody else here in micro finance or economic development?

Hello GMATClub,

I want to fondly congratulate the guys who run this site. I stumbled upon GMATClub after searching for answers to some questions I had wrong on the GMATprep and I am very pleased. I have found it very well kept and have discovered a remarkably supportive community. After reading about the many resources of the site I was thrilled to have found study programs, test resources and success stories that kept my spirit high!

I am eager to share my story since some folks might be having a similar quest and I could get some valuable advice by posting it. The time of truth is within a week for me. I aim for a 700 but my best mock tests have touched the roof of 650. My V has been around 36 to 40, but I have gotten a little lower than that average in my Q, hence I will focus into Math since my V is OK enough. I took a week off from work so I know I will hold an epic battle during these days. The chimaera was not immortal after all.

I have finished the MGMAT Math books and will go through the OG questions suggested on the MGMAT books. Besides, I plan to give a try to the free tests described on other posts in this site (GMATprep besides the one I have already downloaded, MGMAT free test and maybe Kaplan or Knewton). After looking through the on line courses option (I am an international applicant) I settled for the Magoosh set of exercises and great interface since I found that my biggest problem with Q was a lack of practice shown in bad timing and reckless mistakes more than lack of knowledge of hard types of questions.

If you have any suggestions, please drop a line.

Let the light shine upon me!

Hi all,

My name is Nick. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Maryland, College Park and received my BA in Economics with a Minor in Leadership Studies. I just graduate this past May; that puts me at 22, fresh out of a college and currently work in NYC at a large financial services group, specifically their insurance side.

Getting ready to approach the GMAT. I'm driven and persistent so I will eventually attain what I want. My hopes right now being I work in NYC and live in New Jersey are to attend a local school and pursue my MBA in Finance, eventually venture into banking. By local I mean NYU, Columbia, Fordham, Rutgers, and of course UPenn. Obviously I have my sights set high and rejection will only prove to be fuel for betterment.

I've been poking through this website for a couple days. Finally decided to join yesterday; it seems like there are many great, helpful people around here that are willing to help. I assume from my limited knowledge of the GMAT I'm going to need to score 700+. I wish I could let you know my starting point, but I have yet to take a test or open a book! That's my goal for tonight, purchase my first GMAT book (which this site has provided so much insight on already).

So get used to seeing me around here for a while :). I plan on taking my first GMAT this fall/winter. I want to get this process moving along as fast as possible before I turn around and ask where the time went. Any advice, help, words of encouragement will of course be greatly appreciated.

Talk to you all soon!

Nick

Thanks a lot! Purchased the Kaplan Premier Gmat 2012 last night, so I guess that's a start. Getting the study materials and a plan in place so when August rolls around I'll be able to hit the books hard. This site has already helped tremendously!

Thanks guys.

Hello, my name is Ross, I am from Bulgaria and next school year I will be a senior at Dickinson College, PA in the States. I've been preparing for the GMAT for about a little more than a month now and I am giving it at Aug 24th. I don't know yet what exactly I want to do with my master's degree, but given that the GMAT is valid for 5 years and that I have some free time during this summer, I decided to give it a try. I am glad that I have managed to find gmat club as it gave me invaluable information about the different aspects of this exam and also a lot of explanations for many of the problems that I found difficult to deal by myself. Right now I am almost finishing the OG 12 and I've went through all the MGMAT guides, and I am also having a private tutor here with whom we make tests in real time and analyze the mistakes after that. Despite that, I want to say that it is difficult, but in general I am interested in this thing and really want to beat it :) And I hope Gmat club will help me do so :)

Greetings everyone,

I'm Hassan and located in Pakistan. I have a Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering. I've worked for the past 7 years in Manufacturing and Oil & Gas production facilities. Currently working as a Risk Engineer (mainly asset integrity and insurance) and leading Business Continuity Planning for an Oil giant in the region. I'm aspiring to embark on an MBA, preferably in Risk Management / finance in the coming year.
GMAT History: I took my first shot at glory in February, 2011. Prepared for 2 months, traveled overnight for 500km, slept for 4 hours and had the audacity to show up at the test center. Having brewed the perfect recipe for a disaster, i ended up with 630. Hoping to take another go at GMAT in September, 2011.
Study routine: 5-6 hours/day 10-12 on weekends.
Aim: 700+ and Ivy
After lurking and taking massive help from users, regulars and (specially) the admins on this forum, i'm showing up to thank you guys and participate.

Regards.

Hello there. My name is Michael.

I was born and raised in New Jersey, and I am a recent college graduate from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Despite its reputation as an engineering school, I actually went there for Finance (long story). I have minimal work experience thus far, but I currently work as a research assistant at NJIT. Although I do not plan on going to graduate school until 2013 (or potentially later), I plan on taking the GMAT in December 2011 of this year to just get the ball rolling (it is good for 5 years after all, right?).

GMAT History: None thus far. The only thing I've done was take the first practice test from GMATPrep (no preparation whatsoever), only scoring a disappointing 560. Since this is a big disconnect from my goal (see below), I'm wondering how much room I have for improvement. I must say I do want to get this right the first time.

Study Routine: Under construction.

Goals: 780 and Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, or UPenn

Thank you and I hope that this experience will be a great one.
